• The following goals were voted in by the membership for 2016-2017
  • Fundraising: Fundraise to support our budget, focusing on providing financial support classroom needs as well as to achieve our PTA goals. We will have two Granting cycles during the school year to meet HW staff grant requests in a timely manner. We will evaluate our budget status after the fundraiser to determine if further fundraising is needed.
  • FACE (Family and Community Engagement): Expand participation in HW PTA by the various groups in our population, as well as continue to reach out to 5th grade/incoming students and parents. We will establish an ambassador/mentor program for new parents; at a minimum create new family welcome packets. We will sponsor one multicultural event this year (multicultural potluck).
  • Be a Relevant Resource: Better communicate the volunteer opportunities throughout the school year; include specific opportunities on volunteer interest sheet and follow up with clear steps on how to get involved. Continue to communicate school and PTA information through a weekly eblast, newsletter, and FB. Use Peachjar at least once a quarter to send out relevant fliers.
  • Advocacy: Inform the community of issues affecting the education and well-being of children at the local, state and national levels.
  • Education: Provide student and parent education opportunities that reflect the interests of students, staff and parents. We will discover these interests through surveys. We will sponsor at least two educational events for parents this year.
  • Membership: Increase membership by 10% to reflect our diverse population including members from various areas such as parents, staff, students and community.
  • Leadership: Develop and utilize a transition plan for board members for the end of the year. This may include a detailed job description, position binder or document, and a transition meeting with new and old board members.
